This is proof that James has been awesome since pretty much forever. Filmed around the year 2000, it's neat to see how good he was even then, and compare styles. If you've seen how far he's taken some of the ideas in this with his riding today, it should be very inspirational!
There's quite a lot to take in here, but the stem and crossbar techniques stand out. Scott's got some wild looking decade variations and links here, but those multiple backwards rolling whiplashes on the stem are something else! To see that and much more, hit play!
Better late than never! We missed the Vibrations Urbaines contest in France this weekend. As usual it's part of the annual festival week. The contest is on saturday and the finals will be part of the big after party. Check the photo gallery of the 2013 event for some impressions. More details a link to the website: Vibrations Urbaines #17
Maxime who took the photos of the 2013 contest just launched a new photography website. Check it: www.maximecassagne.com
Yesterday we just mention Yevhenii's part in the Ability video and today he dropped us a detailed bike check. Let's say we have a bit of a Ukraine-weekend ;-) Check that clean ride! More photos: Yevhenii Savvatieiev Bikecheck

Ha! This one deserves more love! Ability is kind of a Ukraine BMX documentary. It was published almost 1 year ago and with only 1000 views didn't really get the attention it deserves. You'll get to see many local street riders and also Yavhenii Savvatieiev who is one of the few Flatland riders from the Ukraine. His main part is pretty much in the middle of the video (10:00) and later on there are a few more combos. Thanks to the maker Max Webb for bringing us this great project and thanks to Yegor for pointing it out to us!
Really good practice fotoage from the IOXC Contest in Indonesia (Results). Besides Dub you get to see those gentlemen: Benjamin Hudson, Taslem Raziff aka Botak , Januar Agata aka Botay, Heru Anwari and Shintaro Misawa. Enjoy!
The Overground contest; Round 4 of the World Circuit, took place recently in Brazil, and thanks to Lisias Tabarelli, we have this great highlight video of Viki's runs!
Lisias says (translated): Viki Gomez took 2nd Place with rounds of high control over the Bike. The event was organized by the M.U.F Association in conjunction with the Spanish rider Viki Gomez, who not only decided to bring a step toward Latin America but also give opportunity for Latin American riders to expose themselves and compete toe-to-toe with the best in the world.
